Understanding the cause of lawn burns can be important in understanding the solutions we offer.

Toxic soil is one factor of urine burns in your lawn. Simply stated, the lawn burn is a result of toxic soil in combination with toxic dog urine. All fertilizers are water-soluble salts and toxins. Unnatural toxins and salts stay in the soil and create this toxicity; road salts and road salt drift also contribute to the soil toxicity. "Dogonit" will help correct toxic soil conditions caused by synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and road salt.

The urine salts are a result of under-metabolized proteins in the dog's digestive system. These proteins produce ammonia, which is an organic salt. G-Whiz works in the dog's digestive system to help metabolize the proteins and reduce the ammonia level in the urine. It is the volume of nitrogen (ammonia) that burns the lawn. G-Whiz also contains all the essential amino acids dogs require for good health.

If you are using a high salt fertilizer N (nitrogen), P (phosphorus) or K (potassium), from chemical sources and herbicides you would improve the soil conditions situation by using organic and probiotic fertilizer programs designed to reduce the build up of salts in the soil. We have a product called "Dogonit" that will help the yellow spots heal more rapidly and improve your overall lawn condition.

Another consideration is to lower protein content in the dog's diet. For example, Vitamin C is good for our health, however too much will turn urine bright yellow. The proteins work the same way, when there is more than is needed, it releases as ammonia in the urine. G-Whiz will work in the digestive system to help metabolize the unused proteins. A lower protein diet will also help reduce the volume of nitrogen being created in the digestive system.

Both of these products will improve your lawn condition, which will make happier owners and happier pets.
